Bucketlist yes. A friend of mine has announced he'll be making the trip over there in the next year or two. We'll see if he sticks with it.

I'm glad to see MotoCzysz do something eventful. They learned their lesson and have finally found their niche. MotoCzysz blew through millions of dollars trying to copy John Britten's success to no avail. I love the story of their failure as they thought the money the invested would ensure a fortuitous racing program. If anyone here hasn't seen the videos of their story your are missing out big time.

It makes sense for Segway and MotoCzysz to join forces. I haven't even heard of Segway in the news besides slander in documentaries because of their rise and instant fall in the markets. They sure have some technology and funding still I'm sure. I think the first year they ran the Isle of Man the MotoC bike had a battery failure which made me laugh.

Good write-up on Honda's effort to win as well as some Honda history.
